The Member of Parliament for Bafut – Tubah constituency in the North West region, Hon. Agho Oliver, says the time for truth in development has come for the people of Kedjom Ketinguh (Small Babanki).
The Parliamentarian was speaking as he joined other Kedjom elite in a fund raising ceremony, Saturday November 13, 2021 at the Yaounde Conference Center.
“The initiative is geard towards reacting to the so many projects that have been catalogued by the village traditional council in all the 52 quarters that make up the village… As the people’s representative, it is but normal that we take part in boosting and supporting the efforts of the village.” Hon. Agho Oliver said.
The MP, speaking to the press at the ceremony seized the opportunity to thank all those who mobilized for the success of the event, especially friends of Kedjom.
“You can see how the people are very happy, they are very satisfied. You saw how friends of Kedjom demonstrated real love for the village.” Hon. Agho declared sending special appreciation to the chairman of the ceremony, Justice Malegho Joseph Aseh, who is Secretary General at the Constitutional Council and an elite of Kedjom Ketinguh.
Besides the Kedjom Ketinguh community and friends, the North West Regional Assembly was equally represented at the fund raising by the Commissioner for Economic Development, ‘Njikebeng’ Awunti Ghejung, also a son of the soil.
“The NW Regional Assembly is here representing the people. We shall complement the development efforts of the village. The Kedjom people are very resourceful and progressive and I think it is high time we took leadership in our development efforts. The government can do so much, but the people of Kedjom Ketinguh are the ones who own development and the future of the next generation.” ‘Njikebeng’ Awunti told News Upfront.
With the current crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon, the success of the various projects to be executed will depend greatly on the situation on the field.
“There is no meaningful development without peace. These projects need to be realized in the village, and if the people don’t embrace peace, there is no way the projets will be realized… It’s not giving arms, buying guns and giving to the people, but it is all about building schools, bridges, providing portable water, electricity that is real development.” The MP for Bafut – Tubah said.
The fund raising ceremony was graced with the presence of the Fon of Kedjom Ketinguh, HRH Vuzhugho Nelson Shiteh, and his elder brother from Kedjom Keku, HRM Fon Vutsiboung Benjamin Vubangsi.
Both traditional rulers invited the Kedjom community the world over to live in unity, peace and always have the spirit of development.
